When you need to hire a coach, you have potentially hundreds companies to choose from. Some will be close to you in London. Others will be further away. The internet allows us to compare prices from companies all over the country. But will the quality of service always be comparable?
There are many situations where choosing a local supplier makes sense, and coach hire is certainly one example. Here are some of the reasons why we think you should stick with a London coach hire company.
Traditionally, London black cab drivers have trained for months to pass the so-called Knowledge test. This test is designed to ensure that drivers know enough about London’s roads to be a good driver.
All of our vehicles are driven by professional coach drivers who have picked up similar knowledge from working extensively in the capital for many years. They know the street names, the routes to avoid, the one-way systems and the likely bottlenecks. This means that they can plan to get from A to B in any conditions, and at any time of day.
Sat-nav is certainly a brilliant invention, but a coach driver needs to have this instinctive grasp of London’s roads to get you around a sudden diversion. Would you rather have a local driver that knew the best route off the top of their head? Or would you go with someone from out of town that was relying on Google Maps?
Sometimes, we transport people who aren’t actually from London. We pick up from the suburbs, or transport guests for functions and events. Often, these passengers know vaguely where they need to be, but they don’t know street names and can easily get lost.
With one of our drivers at the wheel, your guests will be notified of local landmarks where necessary, so they’ll be able to keep track of where they are and get their bearings.
